Police and Mayor Virg Bernero's office confirm Robert Busby was found dead in the Creole Gallery.

Busby was the owner of the gallery and a long-time presence in the area.

Many business owners and neighbors called him the unofficial mayor of Old Town.

Friends had reported him missing yesterday.

Police aren't saying how he died or who they think did it.

An autopsy is expected to be performed tomorrow.

Investigators tell us they need to find a vehicle missing this description, a silver 1999 Chevrolet Silverado.

The license plate number is 3897 DF.

If you see the vehicle, police say not to approach it, but to call the Lansing Police Department at 483-4600.
